STORY: An open letter from Bakers Basco to members

During this unpredictable and unprecedented time, at Bakers Basco we are doing our best to play our part in keeping the nation’s bakery products on the move. We know that our member bakers are seeing a spike in demand far in excess than previously seen, even during the Christmas peak.

Of course, known peaks are prepared for well in advance, whereas during a crisis, many parts of the supply chain are affected in multiple ways.

We know bakeries have indicated they have enough ingredients and that a reduction in product range maybe implemented in order to keep up with the extreme demand, these things will continue to reassure the public at this troubling time.

We’d like to reassure all Bakers Basco licensees who are currently seeing a spike in bread sales that they have the added protection of calling on equipment stored by Bakers Basco for such an event.

We’ve already supplied additional baskets and dollies in support of the pool, and all Basco teams are out identifying areas where excess equipment is ready for collection and re-use, thus improving efficiency, cutting down on fuel use and turnaround times. Our dedicated helpline is open to our members seven days a week to help with stock requests.

We hope our friends and colleagues in the industry are keeping safe and well – if we can help you to keep your business moving at this time, please get in touch via the dedicated support helpline.
